Powers of attorney

If there comes a time when you no longer have the mental capability to make decisions for yourself – whether due to injury, illness or old age – a power of attorney allows someone to make decisions on your behalf.

A lasting power of attorney (LPA) can help you with your property affairs, money management and health and welfare.

A lasting power of attorney (LPA) gives you real security for the future and ensures that decisions that have to be made later are made by someone you trust.

Without a lasting power of attorney your family and friends will not have legal authority to manage your affairs on your behalf.

Our powers of attorney services

Having a lasting power of attorney in place will avoid the need to apply to the Court of Protection for a deputyship order which can be expensive and time-consuming.

There are two types of lasting power of attorney (LPA)

  • The first deals with decisions about the donor’s (the person who gives authority) property and financial affairs.
  • The second deals with the donor’s decisions about their personal health and welfare.

We can guide you through the process and help you decide the best approach for you, your family and those involved.

Our expert  legal team can advise you on:

  • Lasting power of attorney (LPA)
  • Registering powers of attorney
  • Enduring power of attorney (EPA)
  • The role of an attorney
